Recognised and certified by the HKGBC, BEAM Plus offers a comprehensive set of performance criteria for a wide range of sustainability issues relating to the planning, design, construction, commissioning, fitting out, management, operation and maintenance of a building. By providing a fair and objective assessment of a building’s overall performance throughout its life cycle, BEAM Plus enables organisations and companies of all sizes to demonstrate their commitment to sustainable development.

Today, BEAM Plus has extended reach to geographical areas outside Hong Kong, including Macau, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing (some projects are certified under HK-BEAM 4/04).
